Granite & I

If you know me

(and most do not)

I have gen’ral affinity for rocks -

of the type that Mohs scaled, yes -

It's their stony immobility I like best.

"My affairs are so goddamn squalid,

while you may bear all, dark and solid,

It causes such resent in me

this disregard for entropy.

No, you cannot split caryopses

But neither is your end in boxes.”

And so the rakish squirrel misspoke on balance:

There is disgrace in meager talents.
